ABOUT THE CONCERT
Hear the twenty splendid “next generation thinkers” (NPR) of this formidably gifted ensemble in works mostly written for them—music ideally calibrated to show off their “equal parts exuberance, nonchalance, and virtuosity” (Financial Times of London). The evening includes a new Violin Concerto by Oscar Bettison and the premiere of a new Library of Congress commission from Annie Gosfield. The concert centers on a major work by a modern master, the energetic 5-movement piano concerto of György Ligeti.
